The steering committee opposed to the CAFOs says the operations would be a huge detriment to the communities, causing property values to plummet, negatively impacting the health of those living nearby, increased stench, diminishing the quality of life and deteriorating infrastructure.
"If there were health problems or if they would decrease home values, I wouldn't build them," Adam previously told the Courier. "I have small children, a 10-month-old and a 6-year-old. If I really believed that these would affect their health, there's no money in the world they could give me to build these buildings. It's false and fabricated."
Conte said a group of Batavia and Eldon residents are considering launching a lawsuit against the CAFOs.
